Bernstrup who works both as a visual artist and musician has been touring worldwide since the late 1990s and he positioned himself as one of the leading re-inventors of Italo Disco with his unique mix of Italo, Synthpop and Gothic Noir. He has created his own unmistakable stage persona wearing androgynous outfits in shiny latex and heavy make-up. Tobias has collaborated with seminal artists such as Trans-X, Apoptygma Berzerk, Martial Canterel, Xeno & Oaklander, Lebanon Hanover, Hante. and She Past Away.

“Petrichor” contains 11 smashing tracks including the recent hit singles “Private Eye”, “Challenger”, “Stranger” and “Only One”. The album also features a Hi-NRG cover version of the Red 7 song “Heartbeat” known from Michael Mann’s 80’s cult movie Manhunter. As a matter of fact, Manhunter has left a lasting impression on Bernstrup with its unique and captivating atmosphere. If we had to describe "Petrichor" in one sentence it would be: A Film Noir in cold blue and pink light that you can dance to.

On the new and 6th full-length album, Bernstrup revisits his musical and pop culture roots using classic 80’s synthesizers and drum sounds of the Oberheim DMX, LinnDrum with a modern sound production.

The CD features 7 bonus remixes by prominent Synth/Darkwave artists: Xeno & Oaklander, Ash Code, Qual, Supermatik (Doruk of She Past Away), We The North, Mexican DJ DMT Berzerk and Westcoast based DJ legend SanFranDisko. Mastering by Doruk Ozturkcan (She Past Away). Artwork by Tobias Bernstrup. Sleeve photo by Julia Peirone.
